RAISING TAXES AND CEDING SOVEREIGNTY IS THE SECOND WAY:

Tory bounce endures, shows Telegraph poll (Andrew Porter, 25/10/2007, Daily Telegraph)

A dramatic turnaround in Conservative party fortunes is confirmed in an exclusive Daily Telegraph poll which shows their revival has been sustained.

David Cameron's personal poll ratings have also doubled in the past month, while Gordon Brown's have dived.

It is the first concrete sign that the Tory tax plans and Mr Brown's decision to call off the election has transformed the political landscape.

The Daily Telegraph YouGov survey shows the Tories on 41 per cent, a rise of nine from last month. Labour has dropped five points to 38.

There is also more gloom for the leaderless Liberal Democrats who have fallen from 15 per cent to just 11.


Mr. Brown demonstrates a catastrophic failure to understand how similar English politics is to American. He's governing the way Bill Clinton did in his first two years, instead of the way W did.

This should surprise nobody.

Brown seems determined to distinguish himself from Blair in many ways (not just Iraq), just as Al Gore was determined to distinguish himself from Clinton in many ways (not just the boorish personal behavior).

It didn't end well for Gore. It may end better for Brown, simply because it's not clear if Cameron understands the third way forward either.
